NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - There's proving to be no home-field advantage in the Big 12 this season.
Road teams are on track to have a winning record for the first time in the conference's history, taking 16 of 27 games so far this year. Historically, road teams have won only 40.6 percent of Big 12 games.
The best finish for visitors was a .500 mark in both the inaugural Big 12 season in 1996 and again in 2010.
Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville called this season so far ``a little mind-boggling.'' His Red Raiders are among the teams who have gotten the results backward, losing twice at home but winning a pair of games on the road this season.
No. 3 Kansas State is the only team without a home loss in conference play.
